It’s been a crazy year to put it mildly and in just one minute, it has been analyzed from an economic perspective over at the One Minute Economics YouTube channel… click HERE to check out the animation, the title pretty much speaks for itself!

… ain’t that the truth?

Last week, I’ve published a video about cryptocurrency exchanges on the One Minute Economics YouTube channel that I’d like to invite you to check out… it’s only one minute long (surprise, surprise) after all :)

In my opinion, the main thing I believe people need to understand about cryptocurrency exchanges…

… a meme is worth 1,000,000 words, someone said?

While I’m pretty sure nobody actually said a meme is worth 1,000,000 words, I believe it’s true when it comes to the topic of corruption. …

… what do you mean past performance is not indicative of future results?

Up until this point, everyone who HODLed (for those of you who don’t know, HODLing basically means being a die-hard buy and hold investor, an investor willing to #HODL during periods of massive price turbulence) bitcoin and cryptocurrencies did very well… remarkably well, even!

However, today’s One Minute Economics animation…

While it would be unfair to state that all…


One of the main misconceptions I have to combat as an economist is the idea that as of a certain point, you’re too old to care about personal finance.

Wrong, wrong, wrong!

As long as you put in a little bit of work to adapt your personal finance strategy to your current needs, worries and expectations, you should be in very good shape. In one minute, the video I’ve just liked to will help you do just that :)

Sounds familiar?

Personal finance for young adults… a one minute animation brought to you by the One Minute Economics YouTube channel. If you found the video useful, please help spread the word: a FB share here, some Medium love there. a Tweet as well perhaps, it all adds up!

Unfortunately, personal finance…

… that is the question

… and the answer is a resounding YES, followed by a just a resounding BUT!

In other words: YES, giving to charities is downright awesome and we should be doing more of that BUT we need to be smart about it.

Last week, the economics behind charities have been explained…

Invest all my savings in DentaCoin? Sure, why not?!?

DentaCoin, for example, is a cryptocurrency for DENTISTS… arguably the worst idea in the history of finance, yet people still invested in it. Why? Well, while some were simply ignorant/clueless, others knew this altcoin is utterly useless but bought in regardless.

They did it because they believe in the so-called…

… that is the question!

Leaving the Game of Thrones meme (I had to, I just had to!) aside, this is perhaps one of the trickiest questions in the world of politics. …
